release for November 2011: Fantasie aus Walküre (Fantasy from Valkyrie)
is normally a much longer piece than any period cylinder record was
able to provide. In such occassions, full operas were not recorded in
full. Instead, especially altered abridged version would be performed
to fit the roughly 2 minutes and 15 seconds a period 2-minute cylinder
record could offer.
Recorded 1905 in Berlin, Germany and released as Edison Goldguss cylinder record #15278.
The transfer of this cylinder record is part of the soundtrack in the
film A Dangerous Method.
